Rwanda in Talks to Host Over 30,000 Immigrants From Libya

The government's intervention follows a UN report that the immigrants, most of them from West Africa, are being sold openly in modern-day slave markets in Libya. They are reportedly then kept in warehouses from where they are taken out for being publicly auctioned between U.S.$400-$500 or if lucky, ransomed by their families.
